A few days ago I had the opportunity to travel to the site of the Arts and Conservation project that I will be undertaking for the next several months. The location is a beautiful and considerable stretch of the Guadalupe River between Sisterdale and Comfort, Texas. The region is classic Texas "Hill Country" with its rolling hills, steep knobs, and rich river valleys with "pecan bottoms." In particular, this stretch of the river is populated by ranks of huge cypress sentinels arrayed below bare limestone bluffs.

I plan on visiting the property over a period of months so I can capture images during different lighting, weather, and seasonal conditions. I will make my first photographic trip to Sisterdale later in June, and will bring you some of the fruits of my efforts here.
